Sunday, May 4, 2014 — DEDICATION MASS

News coverage about our big event: The Frederick News-Post.

Most of the pictures on this page were taken by our late parishioner Mike Collins with Mike Jones flying the helicopter for the aerial shots. This was Archbishop Lori’s first dedication since becoming Archbishop and it was a special day that we will always remember.

Our Rose Window: How the Liturgical Arts committee Chose the Design – Designer Brenda Belfield started by interviewing the committee (including Fr. Frazier) to get a sense of what we were looking for. We talked about our parish history, and discussed how to integrate a sense of the past with the future and our desire to complement the design of the window with the design of the new church.

Brenda presented several preliminary designs. As we reviewed designs depicting church figures and symbols, as well as more traditional “rose window” designs, we kept revising a theme, but couldn’t quite pin down just the right design. Father voiced his desire to concentrate on the more traditional rose window designs…color and light were to be the defining theme.

Subsequent meetings involved refining the designs Brenda created, leading us to the final design. It was truly a collaborative effort by the members of the Liturgical Arts Committee and one we believe enhances the beauty of our church.
